What We Do

  • Sourcing

    We source books through our established relationships with some of the leading book retailers in the UK, as well as universities, student groups and academic publishing houses

  • Selection

    Books are selected according to a set of strict quality guidelines – our interest is in literacy building books and educational text books that will be of value to students of all ages in our beneficiary communities

  • Shipping

    Books are sorted for shipping at our processing centre in Milton Keynes – we aim to donate and ship two 40 ft. containers per month to schools in the UK and Africa with each container holding at least 50,000 books

Safe Delivery

We deliver the donated books directly to the recipient students in their schools in the UK.  In Africa, we work with our own clearing and transport agents and our Project Manager in Africa. We liaise with state agencies to ensure the speedy passage of books through customs and safe delivery to schools and universities

Use of Books

We maintain contact with local schools and communities, and work with them to collect information about the usage of books and the difference they make to the attainments of the students


The efficiency of our process enables us to donate, ship and distribute each book for less than 25p per book
